Shake Sugaree

Post  pinhedz on Sat Jun 18, 2011 8:05 am

The trouble with this song is that if you've once heard Willie Murphy sing it, no one else makes the grade any more.

"I pawned my watch, I pawned my chain,
I'd have pawned myself, but I felt so ashamed,
Lordy me, didn't we shake sugaree,
Now all I had is dead and gone.

It's all gone babe.
All my little bags and bottles,
All my little pills and powders,
It's all gone babe.
But I still remember you."
